Magi: The First Dungeon 3DS game gets a trailer

2:00 PM on 12.04.2012

As a huge fan of the Magi manga, I can't even begin to describe how relieved I am that the anime adaptation has finally begun to get things right. The series is just good fun with a genuinely likable core cast, which makes it ripe for a generic video game based on it.

Enter Magi: The First Dungeon for the Nintendo 3DS. Due out in Japanese stores on February 21, The First Dungeon looks like a generic, rushed 3rd person action game that captures very little of what makes the property so cool. Keep on the look out for obligatory VN style scenes of dialogue. 

This is actually mildly disappointing because the source material would work fantastically as a dungeon crawler or even a rogue-like RPG. I guess I'll have to be content with watching and reading the series for the time being.
